January 01, 1813

Although we have sold hundreds of British sheepskin documents over the last 46 years, this would have to be the most intriguing--and exceedingly decorative.
It begins with: "George the Third by the Grace of God..." in very large handwriting, and within the "G" is a terrific engraving of King George III. The entire document is very decoratively embellished at the margins. Twice within the document they note it is dated the "...fifty-third year of the reign..." of George III, or 1813. The handwriting is beautiful.
Most intriguing is the huge red wax seal which hangs as a fob from the bottom of the document. It measures 4 inches in diameter and is 3/4 of an inch thick. Very unusual. It is protected by a custom-made tin case.
Perhaps the most decorative document we have offered.
